Now our technology is catching up. But would we be able to fly the Enterprise today? Probably not. We have so many rules and regulations that the Enterprise wouldn't get off the ground. The food replicator would curtail our eating choices, the TSA would make it hard to board, the Transportation Department would ban 'transporting.' Is 'Star Trek: The Libertarian Edition' (youtube.com/watch?v=jgRlzFIgm1E) possible? William Shatner sat down to debate the idea with John Stossel at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas. Produced by Naomi Brockwell. Edited by Joshua Swain.
